Stadium Familiarisation Session To Be Held At LNER Community Stadium

York City FC is proud to announce a special familiarisation session that welcomes and supports individuals of all abilities and conditions, with a focus on making everyone feel included in our community. This free session is designed for supporters who, for various reasons, may have hesitated to visit the LNER Community Stadium in the past. We are committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the excitement of sports in a welcoming and supportive environment.

What is the session?

The familiarisation session is an open event that invites you to explore the stadium with the guidance of our club staff and volunteers. You will be led along a designated quiet route into the stadium, and we will show you the locations of key facilities such as toilets and concession stands. Additionally, we will take you to various areas of the stadium, allowing you to experience different entry and exit points as well as different viewing spots. Our goal is to help you find the best areas that suit your specific needs and preferences.

Why is the session taking place?

Our primary objective is to create a warm and inclusive environment for all fans, ensuring that every individual, regardless of their abilities or conditions, can partake in the joy of sports. We hope that this familiarisation session will provide a positive and comfortable experience for those who attend, ultimately encouraging them to return for a match in the future.
